The Burlington County players and coaches gathered in the left-field seats at Citizens Bank Park to say goodbye for the last time. Despite a 2-0 loss to pitching-strong Jersey Shore in Friday's championship game of the 29th annual Carpenter Cup Classic, there was a mostly upbeat vibe about the team's run in the prestigious baseball showcase. "This was a great group," said Nick Corbi, a second baseman from Shawnee. "To become friends with these guys in a short period of time, I feel very fortunate.

AS AREA FAMILIES lather on the sunscreen, pack up the car and head down the Shore, one consideration that isn't always made is where the beach bums will go for spiritual guidance on Sunday. But St. Brendan the Navigator - a Catholic institution that's had various incarnations for more than 100 years - has cornered the market for summertime worship on Seven Mile Island (shared by Avalon and Stone Harbor), according to Joanne Schwarzwalder, the parish business administrator. Who we are: "A seashore parish isn't much different from a parish in the city or suburbs," Schwarzwalder said.

There's that excruciating moment of doubt before the adrenaline kicks in that comes just after you've decided to seat yourself on that Tilt-A-Whirl, gigantic roller coaster or dangling-feet swing ride. But it's too late to change your mind and exit when that safety bar slams down. And within seconds you're off, whizzing five, six, then seven stories above all those tiny people on the beach and boardwalk. This isn't too bad, you think. The view's pretty good and then — slam.

Make room, violet and honeybee. Share the stage, goldfinch. New Jersey may soon have a new state symbol, and how sweet it is. The Assembly's Tourism, Gaming, and the Arts Committee released a bill Thursday that would make salt water taffy the official state candy. Making a persuasive case for honoring the Shore staple were fifth graders from Samsel Upper Elementary School in Sayreville, a community greatly damaged by Hurricane Sandy, who made the trip Thursday to Trenton. They proposed the state sweet to Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski (D., Middlesex)

WHAT a difference a year makes. Last Memorial Day weekend, the aftershocks of Superstorm Sandy and less-than-ideal weather conspired to launch the summer of 2013 rather inauspiciously. But visitors and locals alike down the Shore were singing a much happier tune yesterday - and it sounded a lot like "Happy Days Are Here Again. " "It was a good weekend," offered Carol Forrest, owner of three Wildwood, N.J., retail outlets - two Wild Ocean Surf Shops and Pegasus Earth Shop - as she stood behind the counter of her Wild Ocean store in the Boardwalk Mall in Wildwood.

AS FAR as Father Bill Vandegrift can tell, Philly's Catholics become more soulful and devout when they cross the causeways. His evidence: Not only are Jersey Shore churches mobbed for Sunday Masses (his church, St. Thomas the Apostle in Brigantine, gets 2,000-plus on any given summer weekend), but weekday Masses and rosary devotions also draw flocks of shorebirds. Vandegrift, a Cardinal Dougherty grad (class of '62), attributes the big Sunday numbers to good upbringing. "I think it's the old Philadelphia training.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - After 17 months of business lost thanks to the wrath of Hurricane Sandy - including the entire tourist season last year - hopes are high this summer for brothers Ernesto and Giuseppe Cannuscio at their newly refurbished Bay Avenue pizzeria. Just in time for the make-it-or-break-it months, the Cannuscios cut the ribbon in April on the reopening of Mario's Pizzeria & Restaurant, a place that had been a staple near the resort's bay front for almost 30 years. Sandy's severe winds knocked over the chimney on the 100-year-old building at 15th and Bay, which in turn collapsed the roof, while 28 inches of water flooded in. The restaurant was destroyed.
